Homer's epic poem The Odyssey is one of the greatest and most influential literary works ever produced. However, its complex language and dense web of allusions and metaphors can be difficult for some readers to untangle. In The Story of the Odyssey, author Alfred John Church presents a more straightforward rendering of the events related in Homer's version. It's a great introduction to the poem for younger readers or those just starting to get acquainted with ancient Greek literature
